Welcome to resistance.social! I’m Maria, one of the moderators here. You may know me from other instances. Administrator @TonyStark, other moderators @NatashaRomanoff, @SteveRogers, and I have moved here to our new home along with our friends. Our primary purpose is political but we also like to enjoy ourselves. Please check out “about this server” in the lower left corner of this page to learn more.

It looks like only about a third of my followers made it over to the new account. That shouldn't happen. If you happen to see that I'm not following you any more and I was, right now I'm following so few people that I will certainly see the number increase, so please follow me again! DMs may or may not show up. Mastodon is much nicer than 🐦 but has some hiccups!

18 trans women murdered this year alone. 91% of trans women killed last year were black. This is not okay. We need a grand, fundamental reform of the racist, transphobia-ridden system we live in.

@TonyStark I’m tired of having no one single app that does everything I want it to do, including the ones that cost money. Even the web client doesn’t support animated emojis.

Thursday was a sad sad record for the United States.

Note how many of the worst states are GOP controlled.

@TonyStark

Trump and the GOP are leading the country and many states into ruin.

The UK is in equally dire straits.  

Germany, NZ, South Korea and other countries not so much because their governments basically work, people act (mostly not entirely) for the greater good, and the countries are led by smart people.

@TonyStark Talk to even one individual who is putting their own life on the line in a hospital. These people don't care and won't until it happens to them.

There is no empathy and it is coming straight from Trump. If you care at all about other people, you'll help remove him.

@TonyStark I've never been so mad. People won't listen to medical advice and for what? To prove some stupid point?
Would they turn down cancer treatments now for their family members if Trump said so? It is a

@TonyStark The good news is that there will be no second wave of Covid19 this fall. The bad news is that we’ll still be in the first wave.

Every Republican must go.

@TonyStark I have relatives who intend to have people over for 4th of July. They think that because they live in a rural area and are only inviting family members, they’ll be safe. Never mind the other families who had parties that resulted in people dying; never mind that we’re in one of the worst states; they don’t watch news, so they don’t know. They have no idea where everyone has been or what they do. Nothing will get through to them short of being infected. I’ll stay at home, thanks.

This didn't have to happen. It wouldn't have happened if we'd had national leadership that put human lives ahead of personal political concerns. It wouldn't have happened if so many Republican governors hadn't acted as a Trumpist cult followers and rushed to throw open states without regard for public health consequences.  

We were and are utterly without leadership and every single person will suffer as a result.

Please do something to change this in November.

@MJ :100:

became my mantra several years ago. I noticed who was doing the most volunteering for Hillary, who had the smartest ideas on the birdsite (back when I was still there), and who always votes intelligently.

I saw someone say the exact thing you’re referring to and all I can say is, they were full of shit.

I heard someone has said you can’t support Black Lives Matter and support Joe Biden.

Well, I exist. I am Black. I am I voted for Joe Biden in my state’s primary and I will be voting for Joe Biden in November. There are a lot of us.

It amazes me that while they are stripping away protections of transgender and gender-noncomforming people, they have the nerve to say that it's protecting us! It's time to vote every single one of these maniacal liars out of power.

@Vision

A few people were questioning why she has out-of-state donations.

I've donated to her. I don't live in Kentucky. I donate to big races all over, especially one that can rid of us Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

Anyhow, very interesting article.

Maria Hill :verified: boosted

Interesting.
McGrath is raising money like crazy.
So the GOP & their political action committees are forced to spend more to save McConnell.
That means less money spent on the incumbents who are viewed as vulnerable.

Why Amy McGrath could cost Republicans the U.S. Senate, even if she loses to Mitch McConnell

I donated.

He's going to need every bit of help against the GOP. Let's all help him out. :joebiden: :capshield:

@marissa Same here. We have to vote to protect all the people who would be hurt the most by four more years of trumpism.

Everything that trump doesn't like automatically becomes a hoax. We deserve better. We deserve a leader who will tell the truth and do what is necessary.

"I also got a bad taste in my mouth from Twitter supporting kinds of speech that I don't particularly agree with, and I began to feel like putting my toys and art there was just adding value to the network. For a while I felt that the tradeoff was that the art I published there still enriched my life and the lives of my friends. At some point, though, I started to feel like the balance got out of whack, and I could do more good by putting my work on alternate networks and giving people a reason to get off Twitter. "

All cultural producers with some degree of audience and influence should really think about this: what structures do I validate by my presence? What and whose structures do I reinforce? What other places can I advantage?

@Thunderbirds511 I guess some people in the US are going to get their wish of having the country become isolationist. No other country is going to want to do business with us if we insist on doing herd immunity the hardest possible way there is :/

And how many are now back in the unemployment line due to Trump and the GOP governors opening up the economy too early?

The economy did not ADD jobs, it RESTORED SOME jobs.  

If Trump had taken this seriously from the beginning, we would be on the road to recovery.  Instead he played GOLF and said it would go away. We are setting records with new cases. He tanked the country single-handedly.  Trump is the problem

Joe is the answer.

Vote for Joe Biden. 3/3
